Birds of Peru

These maps were created at The Field Museum during the preparation of Birds of Peru.

Map symbols: solid circles = specimen records; open circles = sight records (including records documented with sound recordings or photographs); triangles = historical records (not rigidly defined, but implies a local extinction or a site from which there have not been subsequent records for at least 50 years). Dotted line = 1000 m contour.
